Spent the night in Tuscaloosa on the way to New Orleans. Looking for some BBQ! After checking out reviews, we decided on Archibald & Woodrow's. The place is small inside, and a little rough-looking outside, but a great experience. It was not very crowded when we were there and the orders didn't take long at all, and the was very... More

In this case, you CAN judge a book by it's cover. They may have been having an off day, but the food was mediocre at best. We visited both locations - the first being what is photographed on the visittuscaloosa website. Strictly meat at that location. So, we wandered around town and found the other restaurant. Better. The baked beans... More

This is a great vinegar BBQ. It was so good. Although I am not entirely sure if this place is up to code, we had a great meal that was amazing. I really loved how the meat was tender, and how the vinegar did not overpower the meat flavor. Our only regret was that our hotel did not have a... More

We had lunch at 12:30 on a Friday. The smoke aroma is deep in the walls and beckons from the tiny parking lot. It was very busy, although contrary to some other reviews we didn't have to wait for a table and there was table service rather than counter-ordering. They could have used a second waitress but that's a minor... More

Driving into Tuscaloosa we were desperate for some BBQ! After checking out reviews, we decided on Archibald & Woodrow's. The place is down home and tiny inside, but a great experience. You give your order at the counter then take a seat and it is brought out. It was not very crowded when we were there and the orders did... More

My husband loves bar-b-q having been raised in Eastern NC. Checked trip advisor and saw this one ranked at the top so we gave it a try. It is a hole in the wall kind of place, but as is so often the case, it is were the good stuff is. My husband and son got the mixed plates, I... More

We arrived late in Tuscaloosa and googled BBQ. This was not too far from our hotel and was still opened. It was not your usual chain eatery. There were many locals eating there, which was a good sign. We ordered the rib dinner. It was only $7!. We had 3 large ribs and 2 sides. My husband was disappointed that... More

Archibald and Woodrow's... When I think of places that I would rather eat in Tuscaloosa, there are seldom few. What makes Archibald's so excellent is not only the AMAZING food (the wings are to die for) but the atmosphere. If you are looking for something fancy - do not eat here. At Archibald and Woodrow's, you eat off of styrofoam... More

The ribs were perfection in every way. The proprietors were very friendly. They have reached the height of their craft. I suspect this place is 'Bama's secret to getting all the best football recruits.
